Did you know odometer tampering is still possible? It's not just a thing done on in the past on older cars.

NHTSA estimates that more than 450,000 vehicles are sold each year with falsified odometer readings

A modern cluster is a complex computerized component, and it can fail. When that happens, it needs to be replaced and the new one made to agree with the rest of the car’s systems.


  1. Sounds like this guy just replaced the clusters.
    And these M-F's are still in business to this day!!!!
    I can't believe the state didn't pull their dealer's license!!

  2. I bought a used gage cluster for my '06 SSR. The truck had 83k miles and the used cluster 13k miles. I figured the state computer might flag it at inspection so I tried to get it reset to 83k. The closest shop (80 miles) who would do it wanted $300 with me pulling the cluster and bringing it to them. I could understand that price if I'd asked them to set it back from 83k to 13k, but not the other way round.
